WAKA Kickball & Social Sports in Haiti

Some of our WAKA friends will be spreading their love for kickball with over 100 children in Haiti from June 30th-July 7th. The program, funded by the Ridgewood YMCA, in cooperation with the YMCA d'Haiti, provides a full week of soccer training and games along with three meals per day. For many Haitian children and teens, this is the highlight of their year.

WAKA is helping by donating t-shirts, cones, bases and kickballs. You can keep up with the YMCA group in Haiti through their Tumblr page: http://ymcahaiti.tumblr.com

We want to take this time to thank all of you for being such passionate kickballers. Without you and your support we wouldn’t be around to donate to these great causes.

Keep on kickin’!

If you would like to personally donate to the YMCA d’Haiti program, they are in need of gently used cleats. You can ship them to:

Ridgewood YMCA
112 Oak Street
Ridgewood, NJ 07450
Attention: Rick Claydon
